craving: a nice evening with my kids and my friends...
Salam alykom and Hola to all my followers and readers.. :) :) :) The long weekend has been good to me and my kids. Last night we had a great time with some of my closest friends. Today we are all invited to a dinner. I hope everyone has a GREAT holiday weekend. For my Christian readers, have a Happy Easter. Now, on to my entry. Ta Ta for now...
There are no words to describe my gratitude and love for you. Gratitude because you have been there for me in one of the 3 lowest moments in my life. The first lowest moment in my life was loosing my mother, and that was a hard road to follow. My second was loosing my son, Mubarak. I was in Europe at the time, and thank God I had a great husband who nurtured me back to life. My third... well, it was losing the love of my life to a dreadful 7 lettered word: divorce. And you, my father, have been here for me during the last dark moment in my life. When the clouds were the darkest, your humor and shyness with your twinge of charm brought out my smile. Without you, where would I be?
When I came back to Texas after being gone almost ten years, I didn't know I was going to stay here. Am I going to make it my home again? God only knows. But you have made it so much easier than it would of been if I didn't have a father like you. You have given me and your grandchildren unconditional love and support. You're unique and you are well loved by everyone who has had the privilege of you being in your life. Love, well, really there are no words to describe my love for you. Not even if I lived on this earth for a million years, it would never be enough to show or tell you the love I have for you.
I've learned a lot since being gone. I've learned that love doesn't come first in someone's life. Love is a word that us humans feel when we want to feel safe. With love should come respect and it should work in this order..
Without respect there can never be love. And those two things, my dear father, I have always had for you. So, thank you. Thank you for being all that you can and more.
I ask God to always protect you and to give you what's good in this life and the next...
final whisper: You are my hero
